1) Have you had your fill of holiday sweets? Burn some calories the fun way—on the dance floor—at Whim with DJ Feed Me. Stepping away from the typical hip hop club music, Feed Me pulls beats from nearly every genre and mixes them all in a way that could make KitchenAid blush. The 29-year-old brings the best of London clubs to Pittsburgh with a full set to keep you on the dance floor all night. Go ahead, listen to “Blood Red” and try not to dance. I triple dog dare ya. Opening sets by Twin Syndrome and Evasion. 9 p.m. – 2 a.m. 1 E. Station Square Dr., Station Square.
2) Calling all bartenders, servers, hostesses, cooks, and dishwashers (and everybody else)! It’s Service Industry Night and the Year End Bash at Howler’s Coyote Cafe. Whether you work in a high-end restaurant or a shot-and-beer dive bar, you probably worked to your limit over the holidays (and hopefully the tips were worth it!). Relax and let someone else do the serving tonight. Even if you’re not in the service industry, kick back with the live music of this $2 show, regardless of your genre preference. Enjoy the acoustic sounds of No Exception and Jeremy Caywood, some pop covers by Aurora, and rock out with Don’t Trust Larry. Come early and stay late; it’s been a rough year, and you deserve a night of fun! 8 p.m. 4509 Liberty Ave., Bloomfield.
3) Win or lose, you’ll probably need to mellow out after the Steelers game. Take in some jazz with the Benny Benack Band at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille. Tonight is a real treat as we get the father/son combination of Benny Jr. and Benny III (B3) along with a full band. Following in the footsteps of the late patriarch, Benny Benack, Sr., the son and grandson have kept things hopping with their impressive improv coupled with the classic sounds of big band, swing, and jazz. Grab your dance partner and get there early for the best seat in the house. 7 p.m. 103 Slade Ln., Warrendale.
4) “So you’re tellin me there’s a chance.” Our seemingly revived Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8) are still alive in the playoff hunt as they take on division rivals the Cleveland Browns (4-11) at Heinz Field. Here’s how it breaks down: with a win today and losses by Miami, Baltimore, and San Diego, the Steelers can actually become 6th seed in the AFC playoffs. It’s a long shot, but stranger things have happened when it comes to our hometown warriors, like the famed Immaculate Reception or the heart attack-inducing fumble/shoestring tackle/missed field goal in the 2005 Divisional Playoffs. It ain’t over till it’s over, kids. 1 p.m. 100 Art Rooney Ave., North Shore.
